Description

To be able to change permissions of directories in world writeable directories in a secure way a slash must be appended to the path in the /etc/permssions* file. This update corrects missing slashes amongst others for /usr/src/packages/*.

Since the permissions package does not change files below /var/games anymore it's safe to set it back to games:games 775.

Solution(s)

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
